Math Materials for 2018-19:
1 Three pronged two pocket plastic folder, clear tape, glue sticks, pencils, erasers, tissues, hand sanitizer, dry erase markers, Loose Leaf Paper (wide ruled), earbuds/headphones and a roll of paper towels.
Course of Study:
The Number System: Provides an opportunity for students to reinforce and extend their understanding of operations with rational numbers.
Expressions and Equations: The purpose is to ensure that students have a strong foundation in manipulating and solving algebraic expressions and equations.
Ratios and Proportions: Students will investigate and solve problems involving rates and develop their understanding of ratios to include complex fractions and percent. Students will analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world problems.
Statistics and Probability: The focus is on the foundational understandings related to simple and compound probability. They will use random sampling to draw inferences about a population.
Geometry: Students will engage in hands-on investigation of the properties of triangles and other geometric shapes. We will work with two-dimensional figures and work with circumference and area of circles and three-dimensional figures by exploring their volumes, as well as determining surface area of three dimensional figures.
HOMEWORK POLICY/LATE WORK/MAKE-UP WORK
I use a variety of teaching strategies to present grading opportunities, which include in-class participation, independent practice, homework, partner or group work and projects. Homework will be assigned daily. It will cover concepts taught or any review concepts. The district policy for homework applies for absences. Assignments will be placed in students individual folder when absent. Work with your absent students name will be placed in a notebook. Students are responsible for getting their own missing assignments when they return from an absence. It is the student’s responsibility to turn-in their work to receive credit.
I give advance notice prior to most scheduled assessments and students should study for each. Each assessment will consist of the content previously taught. Students are able to use their own class notes on quizzes only. Other assessments will be given throughout each of the nine weeks. Students will be given an opportunity to correct/retake an assessment, if they score below 80%, earning a max score of 80%. There will also be mandated assessments given throughout the school year according to state and district regulations.
You can access In-progress grades through the PowerSchool Program (link listed above). Students will earn Practice scores worth 30% of their overall grade: classwork, homework, participation work. They will also earn Assessment scores worth 70% of their overall grade: tests, quizzes, and /or projects. Contact the schools office for PowerSchool passwords. Grades for each week will be available by Tuesday of the following week. Advanced Students must maintain a B average each recording period to remain in the advance class.
Thank you, Mrs. L. Nettles
- Come to class on time prepared with all supplies needed to succeed.
- Respect yourself, teachers, classmates, staff, and the property of others.
- Work quietly. To ask or answer a question, raise your hand and wait to be called on.
- Homework must be turned in the day after it is assigned.
**NEW HOMEWORK POLICY** (STARTING 2nd NINE WEEKS)
This is to inform you of a change in my homework policy. The last nine weeks i assigned 21 homework assignments. The purpose is for our child to practice what we learned daily. This has been a challenge for many students due to various reasons; as a result, students were unprepared for the next day's content, quizzes, and unit assessments. I have decided to support my students by assigning what i call "exit/homework". This is a few math problems to be completed prior to exiting the class as homework. This will allow your student access to my or their peers assistance with the assignment. A copy of the homework will be placed in the Google Classroom Unit Notebook, if you desire to work with your child at home. Thank you for your support.
